No-Words Birthday Card

I'm very stressed out about a presentation I am giving next week, so I needed some stamping time to soothe my nerves. I like to *challenge* myself to try to use more than one challenge on a card! ;) So today, it was Color Throwdown #265 (CTD265) and Mojo Monday #316 (MOJO316).

I used Midnight Muse instead of Not Quite Navy, because I was trying to stick with current SU! products. But then I ended up using a retired stamp set anyway. Oh well!

It was hard for me to combine this many colors into one card (my stand-by is 3 colors and 1 neutral) but I finally made it work! Leave a comment and tell me which one do you like better: with or without the Crisp Cantaloupe embellishment on the left side?
